I tried what you said, but I must be doing something wrong. In my project, I would be deleting at least 111 video clips, with several music, overlays and text lines. This is what I did.
While in the timeline mode, I did a split at the 52nd minute mark
While on the video line, held the shift key and went to the beginning of the show and selected the first slide and hit the delete button
All the videos after that point moved to the beginning of project - but the text, music, and overlays stayed where they originally were placed
I saved file and reopened - nothing was readjusted.
I then manually deleted all the text, music, and overlays up to the 52nd minute mark - but nothing moved - I would still have to realign the music, overlays, and text lines.
I even tried storyline mode and deleted all the clips up to the 52nd minute mark and then looked on the timeline mode, but the music and overlays were not deleted, just the video clips.
Is there a way to select the first part of the video - all the video clips, music, overlays, and text lines at one time - and then delete them? Then have the last part of the video - music, overlays, and text lines - all move to the beginning?
Thanks for all your help.
Thanks for your suggestion. I am using a DL disc, but it seemed that I could not get the highest quality on one disc as the file rendered at 13 gig. So I am using two DL discs for this project.
